May I suggest two possible features...
1: to be able to do presets that just effect certain lights without having to change ALL lights 
ex: preset 1 will turn on lights A and C but leave light B how ever it may be. 
2:any way to do a check to see if a light preset has already been set and then not set it ? scenario for this would be a home with multiple users and if lights are already on then if the other person arrives if its also set to turn them on it wont turn them on.

thanks just a few thoughts/suggestions

if you issue the turn on preset x command, no matter how manny times, your bulbs won't turn off. unless you use the widget with the turn off on second activation option checked.
it's not a on off switch, it'a a smart bulb.

First, obviously, we’re talking recreational! I assume that if you are trying for a bulk sort of operation, there’s no way in hell you’re getting your tips here anyway, but yes, maybe worth saying regardless: this is for short trips and small amounts only. Maybe you’ve got an occasion on your hands in a remote location, maybe your quality-control neuroses, specific proclivities or other extenuating issues make it a subpar option for you track dow...

Today was able to confirm that the hue pro Tasker add on is not working correctly. It does not seem to be interpreting the correct lights in presets. Can this be something that was also effected by same update that broke presets before?

I was wondering if you could help with a question... I use both the Hue Pro and the Hue Pro Tasker. I get inconsistencies with having lights turn on and off when connecting and disconnecting to my home wifi. There are settings for this in both apps. What is the correct way of setting this up. Could you maybe write a tutorial on how to use both apps together since most of us use your apps together. Thanks in advance

Hue Pro is able to turn on lights when connecting, but it doesn't have the feature to turn off lights when leaving. For that, you will need to use Hue Pro Tasker. I have been using the same 2 tasks to turn my lights on and off for a couple months now with no problems. I am curious to see why yours isn't always working.

Try configuring Hue Pro to have the detection disabled; and configure Hue Pro Tasker with two tasks to turn them on and off however you like. Keep track of the behavior, when it works and when it doesn't work. That would be helpful for me!

Many of us know the feeling of posting a regrettable pic or two online. But while your thoughtless photos might be an embarrassment, they (typically) aren’t offensive enough to merit a US Air Force strike. If you’re a terrorist, on the other hand, a wee bit more discretion is probably advised.

I thought long and hard, and came to the conclusion that you should NOT use this feature in future versions of your app because I would *REALLY*  become totally dependent on it :)

Okay....I have a question, with my Droid Turbo, there are Motorola Voice commands, so for example instead of saying "OK Google" I can say something with Moto Voice like "OK Droid Turbo" and there is a option where you can enable it to actually use passwords ....is that the same thing?

They’re being banned from museums, art galleries, and sporting events faster than people can buy them, but that’s ok because selfie sticks are awful and deserve to disappear. However, designers Justin Crowe and Aric Snee may have found a way to redeem them with a selfie stick that looks like a human arm so a self-shot can help hide someone’s crushing loneliness.
